Like Nick Sevilla said, it matters a lot more with unbalanced lines, since a longer cable will pick up more noise. It's also a good idea to keep things like guitar cables short, since the output impedance of a (passive) guitar is a lot higher than that of a microphone. Generally, higher impedance s...

Long snake qestion... (the snake, not the question)

So as I no longer have a room mate, the room next to my control room could be the new "live room" or what have you.

Neve Portico 5012 vs. MOTU896 clips

Ok, never done this before but I wanted to do some quick recordings to compare the Neve Portico (just came in today) to the pres in my MOTU. The mic is a $200 CAD LDC. I did a take of guitar then vocal on each mic pre straight into logic. The lows are rolled off the guitars at 80hz, kind of regret i...

However I did use this machine when it was at a friends studio and it was really fun to hit hard with drums. FREE!!! n...
